Where is iostat?

Hello David,
Neither page mentions iostat. Lots of programs are bundled in to
packages where the package description mentions only a few or none of
the enclosed programs.

I found iostat listed in a Cygwin Web page a few days ago but did not
bookmark the page. The page listed a directory structure that did not
match anything in Cygwin and none of the path components matched package

That leaves me with one entry on the Cygwin site that mentioned an
iostat.h file but nothing in the download. Through trial and error, I
currently have 182 Mb of Cygwin installed, over 12,000 files, but still
no iostat. Surely there must be an easier way. There must be a file that
lists the contents of packages.

Read the Cygwin FAQ entry "Which packages should I download?".  Or
find "Package Listing" on the Cygwin home page.

Not too hard, really.
